Instant Outfits? Yes, Please!
Navigating the new season collections can be a daunting prospect. Fear not, Matalan has everything you need to conquer your #OOTD every day
As far as we’re concerned, one of the only good things about colder days and shorter nights is the prospect of a new wardrobe. But with around 5million knits and too many coats to choose from, how are we ever supposed to compile our new season wardrobe? Well, it’s as if Matalan heard our prayers, as the high street hot spot has packed its AW16 range with versatile, stylish separates we want to wear day after day. Here are our faves to get you started… Ôsometimes I find myself yearning for my (hideous) bottle-green school uniform such is the stress of finding something to wear every day. Luckily, Matalan has these office-appropriate staples. Separately, they have a designer-feel way beyond their price tag, and together make for one knock-out outfit.õ ÔIF someone had told me at the time that my 1998 wardrobe would become my go-to 18 years later, I would have laughed. But, with a few tweaks and a lot more polish (I hope!) here I am repping the 90s. An A-line skirt is universally flattering, and Iõll be wearing this luxe leathery number with a striped polo, ankle boots and Ð just to keep my nostalgic dream alive Ð some gold hoops. Hello, weekend wardrobe.õ Ôwho said comfy means boring/shapeless/dowdy? Not me. Embroidered denim is everywhere right now, and I love Matalanõs subtle take on the trend with this pair of boyfriend jeans. Paired with a check shirt, skate shoes and a parka, these true blues get extra kudos. I wonõt be wearing anything else.õ
